30 January 2012
Long week! and I'm really tired!
Some of the highlights:
Over the past month and a half or so i have let my hair get longer and was actually parting it! weird, I know. I looked really goo, of course, but i got sick of having to comb my hair. and i felt like a nerd every time i did it. so i got a haircut and its back to its normal short buzz.
Elder larsons bike axle broke because he always jumps off curbs and stuff. so we spent most of saturday at the bike shop. but it was cool because while we were there the guy tried to fix my bike. it's still pretty ghetto and makes weird noises sometimes, but the gears at least work now. and the wheel glows in the dark now :)
on saturday night someone made us balut. balut= a duck embyro in the egg shell. it was pretty gross looking, but tasted ok. kinda like egg drop soup
and this weekend was stake conference. Craig C Christiansen came. he gave some good talks and it was a rally good conference. elder larson and i sang in the chior.
and today we went on an awesome hike up a canyon! it was about 60 degrees out and a group of about 12 of us set off to look for a waterfall in what is called Ice Block Canyon. Once we got to a certain point there werent really trails anymore so we had to kinda just fend for ourselves. it was sweet! we all made it. no serious injuries. when we got to the top we ate lunch and then we turned around and went back. it was a good time! i didnt see any animals. maybe 2 birds that was it. not even any bugs. it was weird. thats the desert in the winter tho i guess.
Here's a poem i found this week:
All the water in the world,
no matter how it tried,
could never sink the smallest ship,
unless it got inside.
And all the evil in the world,
the blackest kind of sin,
cannot hurt you the least bit,
unless you let it in.
I hope you all have a wonderful week! be good :)
